 Exercising with the Power Runner

You should be developing your hip strength in order to improve your base of power. The glutes are the largest muscle group in the body for a reason. Understanding how to maximize your training to improve utilization of the glutes is another issue. The Power Runner is a unique and innovative devise that targets the hip complex while strengthening the core. Used primarily by NFL football teams to develop explosiveness, its effectiveness is unmatched. You are not likely to find this training device at your local gym, but CycleOne has one in its studio for use by CycleOne athletes.


Power Runner Testimonials

"I have found the Power Runner to be most useful for me once I transition from basic circuit training at a gym to specific strength and power workouts. The Power Runner not only has improved my speed through functional strength training but also anaerobic capacity and power endurance which I think is critical for a cyclist. I'm not getting any younger, so working my fast twitch muscles fibers is a year round goal of mine. The Power Runner has enabled me to be stronger, quicker, faster on a bicycle as I age........"

“The following are some highlights regarding my personal and professional experience with the Power Runner, the finest overall lower body training machine ever developed:

    - Main distributor for the Power Runner, 8 years.  
- Marketed the machine to several high schools, colleges, health clubs, & training centers.   

    - Helped athletes excel in their sport by writing specific programs applying to them.
    - Trained myself on the Power Runner, for cycling benefits.  
    - Trained on the Power Runner daily even in the middle of cycling season.  
    - Trained both of my sons who were racing in the OBRA circuit as juniors
The Power Runner hits target areas of muscle development better than any other piece of equipment.  I also noticed a huge increase in my sustained power output, as I was doing VO2
testing about every 2 months.  Just before the State Road Race Championship in 2001, I tested
at 575 watts before hitting my max heart rate of 214 bpm. The trainer, Saul Blau, made the
statement; “No one can catch you if you get away”. On that particular day another teammate and I got away in the first few miles of the race and were never caught again. I ended in a solo finish over 4 minutes ahead of the peloton. That same year my oldest son, Donnie, won the state road race in similar fashion. It was a day I will always remember. During that same year, we both experienced several podium finishes, wrapping up my season with finishing ninth in the National RR in my age group (some of my other accomplishments are listed below):

2001 OBRA Masters results        
State RR- 1st                        Silverton Criterium- 1st
State Criterium-2nd            Mt. Tabor – 2nd
State Hill Climb-2nd            Mayor’s Cup - 2nd
National RR – 9th                Mt. Ashland Hill Climb – Best Masters time

In my experience of personally training athletes over the years I would say; “There is no better
piece of equipment to train with, especially for cycling!”
